Description - German Expressionism: Paintings at the Saint Louis Art Museum by Melissa Venator

The Saint Louis Art Museum has assembled one of North America's largest and most comprehensive collections of German Expressionist paintings. Rediscover a defining movement of modern art through this original study of works by 25 artists who span its famously wide arc.

This is the first publication on the Saint Louis Art Museum's internationally renowned collection of German Expressionist art, which includes major works by the movement's leading artists and lesser-known figures rarely seen outside of Germany. Engaging entries delve into the paintings' histories, from their production to their arrival in St. Louis. An introduction traces the collection's origins to the flood of Expressionist art that entered the United States during World War II. What emerges is a new account of a pivotal era in modern art.
